your horn and the reason why those of us who advocated for no right turn on red, and then signs. i wouldn't matter signs at 80% of intersections, and that said right turn on red after a full stop for no one else is using the intersection. but the problem becomes that having made the law that right turn on red, people start thinking that they have the right to make that right turn on red. hold that thought, because i want to talk about one other thing, this last point about the expectation that if there are two teenagers standing on the corner, you ought to be slowing down or showing you are aware are them in some way. the highway department has the signs that show the family running across the highway to alert drivers on interstate 5, that might be refugees dashing into the roadway to find freedom. and the notion presumably is when you drive on interstate 5, you don't expect to see a family run across the roadway. whereas when you drive in san francisco, you ought to expect to see teenagers stoned on testosterone and as a as -- seniors and when i give safety tests, they are all on

i hope this allows us to take quantitative reductions from the greenhouse gas mitigation strategy. the threshold is compliant with a greenhouse strategy. the concept is if the city or county has prepared a greenhouse reduction strategy and a development comes along, then that project impact would be less than significant. the planning didn't was instrumental in shaping the final requirements of the greenhouse gas strategy, not only if we adopted an action plan, but many of the gases in that strategy have already been implemented and produced real reduction. i have just received our latest inventory, showing the city has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by 6.8% below 1990 levels, we have met our goals and well on our way to meeting the city's more aggressive greenhouse gas reduction targets. part of the reason for our success is san francisco has implemented a broad set of policies and programs, spanning everything from our municipal operations, to requirements for private development projects. as such, we feel that greenhouse gas emissions, are most appropriately addressed in
